During winter times , much less crowded .
Wonderfull viewss , easy acces .

Beautiful views, moderate intensity with a little more challenging scramble at the end. Would recommend!

great climb, amazing views! weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky! climbed 17th November 2018

The scramble at the end up true start of the climb to the summit can be hard going at times but the views are outstanding

For the people who don’t want to or can’t hike up to the top, a moderately challenging climb up to the second lake of Glaslyn will give you beautiful views after which you could choose to return.

Done this a few times . Must enjoyable when it’s snowing .

Took this on the way down after Mjners going up. Both are superb! Not overly difficult despite the “hard” rating. But you can’t beat the views on a sunny day.

Great track; phenomenal views! Would love to do it again, but alas, heading home.

Terrific walk

A great experience!! A challenging climb for me as a I’m nit the fittest but it was gray fun.

We did Miners Pass both up and down as we completed in July when the weather was hot and some members of our party wanted to swim in the lakes on the way back down! We are CrossFitters so all of good fitness levels and found the path relatively straight forward, bit of a scramble where the Miners and PYG track meet but not too bad if you take your time.

This was my 1st time hiking a mountain and felt confident doing it, plenty of people doing it so no danger of getting lost!

Pouring rain high winds. Loved it.

Enjoyed this walk today with my family and dog.
Pouring with rain but still scenic and photogenic.
Saw a family with a pushchair - gives you an idea of the suitability of this walk. Mainly uphill out and of of course downhill on the return.
Car park at the bottom is £2 for the day. (Aug 18)

Lovely walk with stunning water falls at the end

So so so so so stunning. Views are amazing, but the climbing scramble up and along the ridge are not for the faint. Wouldn’t try the ridge section on a gusty or rainy day unless you’re an experienced climber.

I am a beginner mountain biker so was a challenge in some areas ! Overall left with some heavy legs, tired arms and a big smile! Loved every minute of it!

Amazing hike. Start at Pen-Y-Pass and follow the path on the right up the Pyg track. At the fork bear left (unless you want to go up Crib Goch- not for the feint-hearted!). The surface is uneven, and a good pair of walking boots is a must. The last zig-zag up to the summit is by far the hardest. Coming back, you follow the Pyg track until it veers downwards towards the visible miners track below. Although the Miners route is the easiest, it is also a long track that seems to never end. My advise is, push yourself and go all the way back via the Pyg track. It may be more difficult, but at least it keeps you engaged! Nonetheless, a wonderful walk. Highly recommended.

Family friendly. Kids enjoyed it.

We started at Llanberis. Walked up with 6year old and 1,5 year old. Got only up to Caffe, 6 year old would not make it. Very nice views, definitely worth it, even if you go only half way there. Will come back without kids sometime or might take train up.

Great fun scrambling, we did the miners track back and enjoyed a pasty at the top.

Great views. Fairly challenging in places.

Took this route going up to the summit of Snowdon on Monday 2nd July. Views were amazing to see in all directions.

The easiest route up the mountain. Takes a bit longer but easy to navigate. Little cafe at halfway during peak months.

Bit boggy on the last section

Amazing hike to the summit. Would recommend returning via the miners track for a loop

Good moderate hike with some tough steep climbs

Stunning views, not too hard.

Breath taking at points but you needs some balls of steel for the ridge walk

Almost all single-track up and down. Brilliant trail, cafe nearby.
